The minimum wage in Michigan was increased on January 1, 2023 from $9.87 to $10.10. Employees must be paid at least this amount for all hours worked, with some exceptions. Tipped employees may be paid a lower hourly wage, as long as their tips bring them up to the minimum wage.
Some workers are exempt from the minimum wage, including those who are specifically exempted by state or federal law, such as some student workers and trainees. Some employers may also get a special minimum wage certificate from the state that allows them to pay certain workers with disabilities less than the minimum wage.
